The Government of India is committed to provide all citizens with equal access to healthcare, and digital health is a key enabler for the effective transformation of the health ecosystem. India's digital health campaign promotes the use of digital tools to meet the healthcare goals and places a significant importance on teleconsultation in health centres at a grassroots level. The goal of teleconsultation is to create a platform wherein a mid-level healthcare provider can connect patients to doctors through a technology platform.

Gradually, it will also include e-pharmacy and telemedicine services.
